Three McHenry County departments posting soon

Several contributors travelled to Division 5 (McHenry County) yesterday and photographed the apparatus and four fire stations of the McHenry Township FPD as well as Richmond and the three stations in Woodstock. As this represents eight stations and just under 50 pieces of apparatus, it will take a few days before the departments are posted to the site. Thanks are in order to Hank Sajovic, Karl Klotz, Bill Friedrich, Larry Shapiro and George Reichardt for braving the heat. Most of all though our thanks go out to the personnel at all three departments for being so helpful, outgoing, and patient to accommodate the group so that everything could be documented.

New tanker for Barrington last year

The Barrington and Countryside Fire Department took delivery of a Freightliner/US Tanker unit in 2009 that we have not yet featured. The chassis is a short, 2 door, M2106 Business Class model from Freightliner with a single rear axle. The Heritage model fire apparatus features a 750-GPM Darley pump and carries 2,000 gallons of water. Delivery photos can be seen HERE.

This fire department is not yet represented on the website but with any luck, that will be achieved by the fall of this year.
